    Question Is Ubuntu the most cutting-edge linux?

    I was just wondering if Ubuntu is the most cutting-edge rolling distro.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    i believe it is one of a few cutting edge distros. but it is not a rolling release.

    Well yes and no. We have regular releases, but sometimes that is the reason why some thing get cutted out (ex: OOo 3.0 in INtrepid)

    As far as cutting-edge rolling-release goes, Arch may be the top contender.

    If you're looking for cutting-edge, non-rolling-release, Fedora is the first distribution that comes to mind.

    Their are other cutting-edge linux distro's available out there, and Debian (the rock of which Ubuntu is build upon) is one of them (to name some: Gentoo, Fedora, RHEL, and you can add others which you know can be well adopted for production use).
    Steady movement is more important than speed, much of the time. So long as there is a regular progression of Stimuli to get your mental hooks into, there is room for lateral movement. Once this begins, its rate is a matter of discretion.

    Sorry, I assumed that because you can update through the repos it was a rolling release, on a "define:rolling release" google search I see I was wrong. What I meant was a distro that doesn't need to be reinstalled on each release.

    Well on that you are correct, but most of us would recommend a fresh install, because it seems to be smoother in the end.

    I recently had a look at opensuse and tinyme and they aren't as cutting-edge as Ubuntu

    I hate having to install everything all over again, it's too much effort and time.

    No they are a little more behind. The most up to date, would be Arch and Gentoo, they are both rolling releases, and you don't have to re-install when a newer version comes out.
